Served on tap at Westline Inn, Westline PA.

Nice middle of the road sessionable red.

Thin white head of foam settles on top from a well poured tap. Beer color is a nice light red in color, very clear.

Malty, sweetish and caramelly, but still a good crispness to it that makes it not overbearing. Enjoyable, as I said, as a session beer.

Mouthfeel, I guess, maybe a little thin, but not so much so to make it too"light".

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a pretty amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, some caramel, a bit of an unusual, mustiness. Taste is hoppy, bitter, some grains, none of the caramel in the smell. Kind of mild, dry at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an ok beer, but nothing special.

I picked this up at Wegman's, enjoyed chilled in a pub style glass.

The color is deep amber with moderate haze hinting that it is unfiltered with thin off white cap with fine bead some wavy lace sticks. The smell has a moderately high amount of malt in the aroma, but generally low in yeast or hop esters with slight toasted grain scent. The feel is decent with moderate carbonation and slight creamy texture resulty up front with more dry maltiness in the middle and light bready texture with mild bitterness in the finish.

The flavor is good with mild toasted grain and light yeast elements in the initial taste. The flavor has nutty malt elements with gentle fruitiness in the yeast flavor. There is a subtle hop taste but not enough to really garner a descriptor other than bitter toward the end. Overall this is a standard red in the American Amber realm, pretty drinkable but just about average in every way - nothing really sets it apart in my opinion.

22 oz bottle. Pours amber with short lived white head and soda-like carbonation. Aroma is of noble hops, caramel malt and cherry. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Taste is very balanced and similar to aroma. Finish is long and spicy. Tasty, nicely balanced red.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A - amber with a thin, off white head that has good retention

S - toasted malts, some faint caramel, fruity aroma

T - toasted malt, fruit, apple, caramel, mild bitter finish

M - medium bodied, smooth crisp

This is a nice though simple amber ale. The toasted malt seems to be the most dominant flavor with some esters added for good measure. The isn't much of a hop presence save for a slight, balanced, bitter finish. Overall, this is a nice, simple, refreshing amber ale that is easily sessionable.
